It's almost not fair that President Obama, who wasn't even alive at the time the United States government was infecting Guatemalans with gonorrhea and syphilis without their knowledge in the forties, had to call the Guatemalan president to apologize today after the experiments were unearthed by a researcher. A written statement like the one Hillary Clinton offered today is one thing, but a phone call? Talk about awkward. You know after a while Obama did the old "oh, my delivery is here" bit just to get out of there.
